Wikiwander, With Detours

...So, Alan at SnarkyBytes sent me lookin' for Miskatonic University paraphernalia, which led me to the source, which pointed me at (but not to) the MU team, the Fighting Cephalopods (yayy, PODS! Victory through sacrifice! Volunteers needed for pep rally, sign-up sheet below) and that led me to their perfect rival: UC Santa Cruz' Banana Slugs! ...Which led me to the real thing and then right back into Lovecraft-land, only realer than ever: stabbing snails and the Love Dart. (Warning, explicit snail-on-snail action).

Also, I want me a Zen Slug T-shirt. Yah, the U and me, not so much on the same page in many ways. It's still a kewl mascot.

I also need a Miskatonic South Pole Expedition sweatshirt....

Update: Y'know, they tell us that the "elf-arrows" our ancestors sometimes found were merely Neolithic arrowheads but beseems me some of the Sidhe were entirely too smallish for that to work out. D'ya suppose anyone might've taken a snail's cast-off love dart to be such a thing?

Here's a local source for such things, too. Yes, they ship. I've bought lots of things from them over the years, including my Vorpal Rabbit.

There's Fake University stuff, too. Not so elaborate as Roberta's detailed list, but funny is a sort of warped way.

if ye haven't seen it yet, Call of Cthulu is a splendid new silent film depicting the story.
